The Centre for Baptist Studies supports the continuing development of Baptist ministers through sabbaticals, learning events and responding to requests from Associations or ministers.

It supports UK ministers in engaging with the Continuing Ministerial Development Handbook in particular the five habits of learning, attentiveness, accountability, connection and review. See the Baptist Union website for more information.

See the links below for the list of current opportunities. In addition to these, we welcome conversations about how we might support Associations or individual ministers. Contact Helen Cameron in the first instance at
